Space radiobiology and the new era of induced radioresistance: should traditional concepts be moved to science history museums?
Energetic solar particle events (SPE) which are among the main sources of ionizing radiation can be life threatening to astronauts who are not adequately protected. To date, physical shielding of spacecrafts and inducing radioresistance by using radioprotectors have been proposed by different invest...
Development of a model to mimic pleural space mechanics.
A simulator of the respiratory system which includes the pleural space is currently lacking. However, such mechanical models are essential to develop and test new medical devices regulating the pressure in the pleural space. It was the aim of this study to develop a model which mimics the pleural sp...
Tracking technology: lessons learned in two health care sites.
We conclude that successful tracking in a health care environment requires time and careful consideration of existing work, policies and stakeholder needs which directly impact the efficacy of the technology....
Feasibility of using C-reactive protein for point-of-care testing.
C-reactive protein (CRP) point-of-care testing (POCT) can be a valuable tool for decision making in primary care. Very few studies have illustrated the utilization of CRP POCT. To conduct a systematic review on the use of CRP POCT in primary care settings and to examine its feasibility and acceptabi...
Keyword index volume 19 (2011).
An old issue and a new look: electromagnetic hypersensitivity caused by radiations emitted by GSM mobile phones.
We previously showed that there was no association between mobile phone use and EMF health hazards among university students. As our previous study was based only on self-reported symptoms this double-blind study was designed to answer two basic questions. Firstly, are self-reported hypersensitive i...
Applications of an adaptive knowledge platform in translational medicine for breast cancer.
This paper discusses the application of an adaptive technology platform to evaluate clinical pathways, clinical strategies and their application to early genetic testing in Europe. It results from a collaboration between Professor Christine Huttin, who created a technology startup ca...
Two-stage revision of infected total knee arthroplasty using a distraction spacer.
This method allows cement hardening without micromovements and early mobilization with partial full weight bearing and prevents the contraction of the capsule and the ligaments during the prosthesis-free period, preparing the knee for a secondary TKA or an intramedullary arthrodesis with a titanium...
Influence of body mass index and thickness of soft tissue on accuracy of ultrasound and pointer based registration in navigation of cup in h...
We observed a significant correlation between the thickness of the presymphysial soft tissue and the anteversion error in both groups. We also detected a significant correlation between the anteversion error and the BMI in both groups. However, the absolute error in anteversion with increasing thick...
